Oh the Screaming

We’re surviving a colicky baby period, mostly thanks to a prescription med that is truly a God-send. I’m getting quite skilled at eating with one hand, as it turns out that babies want you to hold them at all times. For the typical infant she doesn’t sleep very often, but when she does it’s starting to be at long but awkward stretches, usually while I need to be doing something that keeps me from sleeping while she sleeps. We find ourselves keeping meticulous count of the frequency of feedings, wet diapers, dirty diapers, and burps, and I know more about my baby’s schedule than I do about my own. We’re still producing the strip but what’s gone out the window is any time to put thought into promotion and much of my social communication. But content is the important thing, there will always be time to do that again when Lydia is a few more months along.
